"Life of Pi" describes the edgy adventure of a young man from India and how he was stuck on a lifeboat with a tiger. It sounds too fantastic, but the author makes it believable. The first third of the book relates anecdotes about Pi's life in India, his religious beliefs, and his family. The tiger encounter begins later in the book. "Life of Pi" discusses philosphy, religion and human stamina all while learning how to live with a tiger in a small space. I love this story. Destined to be a modern classic.
